Archives Question #lithuania

Howard Margol <homargol@...>
 

Isabel Cymerman asks - Does anyone know whether the Lithuanian
State Historical Archives accepts checks in Euros, Pound Sterling
or South African currencies?

All of the Lithuanian Archives accept personal checks in any
currency recognized by world banks. They do prefer Euros
now that Lithuania is a member of the European Union.

They weren't completely isolated. The people of western Alaska were in
contact with the people of eastern Siberia. For example, Yupik languages
are spoken on both sides of the Bering Strait.

Landau, Margulies, Buckwald families #galicia

Judith Scarani <judithscarani1@...>
 

I am stuck. With my new family found through Jewish Gen we have put together
a very braod family tree of Halperns in Suchustow. I am now trying to find
my Halpern connection to the Landau family. My gg grandfather Rewin Halpern
was married to an Ester Margulies. Her parents names were Miriam Landau and
Getzel Margulies. I do not know if Ester Margulies was born in Suchustow, as
I hit a dead end at JRI Poland databases., so I am not sure if Landau's even
lived in Suchustow. Several of my mother's cousins insist that they were
told that Miriam was related to the "great Landau" rabbis. I did not find
her name on the Landau Yitzkor web page but it doesn't show younger
generations circa 1800-1840.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Are there any town leaders out there with
other information on Landau names not found in the JRI database?
Second question: I have an 'official' portrait of my gg grandfather. He was
the Mayor of his town. Question is, which town? His name was Joseph
Buckwald. He married Judith Fleishner. Do any town leaders recognize the
name Joseph Buckwald as a Mayor? I am assuming that he lived in the
Suchustow region as well....but the shtetls are numerous....any suggestions?

Thank you for all your help. b'shalom,

Kav Hayashar's son #rabbinic

NRD1616@...
 

Rav Zvi Hirsh Kaidanover, who wrote the Kav Hayashar, had a son.
When Rav Zvi Hirsh was imprisoned in the late 1600s in Vilna, his
son went to Slutzk to his uncles, and was put into prison there too.
Does anyone have any info on that son: Name, wife, children, etc.

Thank you in advance

My wife's mother, Leah Lulkin, was born in Harbin, China (1905). Her
father, Samuel, was a pharmacist. She had a brother Morris. There was a
large Jewish population there before she emigrated to the U. S. about 1925.

Does anyone have a connection to the Lulkin family?
